Street Hockey Penalties

The following list of penalties was found on the Street website and are to be used only as a general guide.

ICE HOCKEY - Ice hockey has major and minor penalties. If you break a rule, you go to the penalty box for a set amount of time while your team plays without you.

STREET HOCKEY - Penalties are strictly forbidden. PENALTIES ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. Got it? Any player whose intentional actions result in a penalty will be pulled from the game and will not be allowed to return to the game. Period. The safety of all players is Priority Number One. If a penalty occurs unintentionally, the player committing the penalty will be pulled from the game to sit out for two minutes. A substitute will be brought in to play for the penalized player.


HIGH STICKING - Keep your stick DOWN. A player who carries his stick above the waist is a penalty waiting to happen. If your stick goes above your waist, you will sit down.

CHECKING - Body checks are illegal in street hockey. Do not use your body to force another player into a wall or barrier or out-of-bounds.

INTERFERENCE - You may NOT interfere with another player who does not have the puck.

CHARGING - Similar to checking - you can't run or jump or fling yourself into an opponent.

ELBOWING - NO throwing elbows.

SLASHING - NO striking or slashing at an opponent with your stick.

BUTT ENDING - NO jabbing an opponent with the but end of the shaft of your stick.

FIGHTING - You know what it is. DON'T do it.

TRIPPING - Knocking your opponent's feet out from under them with your feet, that's called tripping. Knocking your opponent's feet out from under them with your stick is still called tripping. And it's a penalty.

HOLDING - You may NOT interfere with your opponent's progress with your hands.

HOOKING - You may NOT interfere with your opponent's progress with your stick.

CROSS-CHECKING - If you hold your stick with both hands and slam the shaft of it into your opponents, that's cross-checking... Now, go sit down and watch the rest of the game from the bench.
